Houston Hill, Cabot, VT

Project Overview

In 2002, Seth Kelley was hired to design a twenty by twenty-four foot workshop at a residence in Cabot, VT.  This frame features tamarack sills, six naturally curved cherry braces and top plates that extend several feet past the gables for added protection from the elements.  Seth used a necked, tying joint that he had seen and admired in an old barn earlier that year.  We look forward to the next opportunity to employ this unique and fascinating joint.  The frame was raised by hand, with friends.  We have fond memories of the homeowner grilling up hot dogs and tossing them up to people on the frame at lunch.
